About the Author
From 1929 until his death in 1986 Jiddu Krishnamurti traveled all over the world speaking spontaneously to large audiences. He engaged in dialogues with religious leaders, scientists, professors, authors, psychologists, computer experts, and people from many different backgrounds deeply questioning their daily life. Krishnamurti claimed allegiance to no caste, nationality or religion and was bound by no tradition. The rejection of all spiritual and psychological authority, including his own, is a fundamental theme of his.
